Davio's Boston Tonight

Looking for the best items on the menu...I am not into the "restaurant week" menu. Wondering about the fois gras, the pasta, and the steaks.....any recommendations? oh, and wines to match..

  1. I always opt for their tomato soup and a half order of the bolognese - YUM!

      I was thinking of the bolognese. I had read good reviews about it. What's so great about the tomato soup? I've only had Campbells' :-)

        Very, very strong tomato flavor, slightly spicy (just a hint). Warming in cold weather!

    2. I haven't had their most recent fois gras: "Hudson Valley Foie Gras, Golden Raisins, Grilled Cipollini, Fresh Thyme" however their version served with pear, shallot jam and balsamic emulsion from a little while ago is AMAZING. I love foie gras and have had it most places that serve it in the city...the best is Davios and one that I had at Aujourd hui- also with pears and balsamic drizzle, except their version included a thin slice of ginger flavored bread/biscuit. Also, the portion at Davios was enormous- alarmingly actually. Though still as flavorful and tender as ever.

        So maybe if others in my party will share it, I'll order it...don't want to burst an artery or anything, eating it all on my own. Thanks for the recs...the one at Aujourd'hui looks more like what I'd like to keep all to myself.

            If you're into chicken livers, they're excellent there.

        1. As to portion size - you can get the pastas and risottos as half portions (except maybe the lobster risotto).

          1. It's been a year or more since we were there but I recall the sommelier really impressed my husband who was very happy with the wine. And it is a "steakhouse" and the steak, lamb and veal entres are excellent. Great risotto too.
